I’ve never seen TimeStamp but I know my users have always used Winspool to import any information genereated by AS400 into Excel.
They usually will run a query and dump it to an outcue on the 400.
Then Winspoll will let you import from the particular library and cue.
Once Winspool has it you can import the file into an Excel spreadsheet.
This app does require ODBC be installed but it’s been very useful for my users for years.
It’s an older app but runs on XP Pro SP2 without issue.
Timestamps are nothing else but date & time in this kind of format:
I use that to trigger updates or DB2 master files, stored in one specific control file, to check inside the excel application if the excel DB needs refresh (Is any update available).
This is the way i control updates availability.
If you need one full example of the interfacing type, just provide me your email.
